Hannes Wolf (born 15 April 1981) is a German football coach who last managed VfB Stuttgart.

Career[edit]

Born in Bochum, Wolf spent his playing career as a striker in German minor leagues, including a stint with the second team of 1. FC Nürnberg. His career on the sidelines began in 2005 at SG Eintracht Ergste, followed by a tenure as player/coach at ASC 09 Dortmund. In 2009, Wolf was named assistant coach of Borussia Dortmund’s men's reserve team, before joining the coaching staff of the club's youth set-up one year later. He later became the head coach of the reserve team.[1] In the final 15 matches he coached, he had a record of six wins, five draws, and four losses.[2] Under his guidance, Dortmund’s under 17 squad won the German national championship in 2014 and 2015. He also led the club’s under 19 team to the national title in the 2015-16 season.[3]

On 20 September 2016, Wolf became the head coach of 2. Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart.[4] His first match was a 1–1 draw against VfL Bochum on 23 September 2016.[5] Stuttgart defeated Greuther Fürth 4–0 on 3 October 2016.[6] The following match against Dynamo Dresden, on 15 October 2016, Stuttgart lost 5–0.[6] He eventually guided VfB to promotion to the Bundesliga as 2. Bundesliga champions.[7]

On 28 January 2018, Wolf was sacked in Stuttgart due to lack of success.[8]
